Reviews The Emerald Sea (The Glittering Court #3)

  • Azrah
    Wow this was actually great. I must admit that in the Glittering Court I was not a Tamsin fan. She was too competitive and obsessed with winning. I just couldn't stand her. In ES we find out that there is a reason she is like this. And that really changed the way I felt about her character. Being the best, and marrying the most eligible bachelor is not something she wants. It's something she has to do. (view spoiler)[I was truly shocked to learn ...

    I loved the first book in this series but both book two and three was a let down for me for some weird reason.

    I rarely write reviews on good reads because I write badly in English (I am french by the way), but when I see that this book is so under appreciated... I had to step in, shitty level or not. We all get to play wonder-woman one day. It's really strange for me, because I have been reading Richelle Mead's books for ages, I started with the Vampire Academy series in high school. I really appreciate how her writing has improved, how she was able at s...

    This has been my least favorite of this series but over all I loved the series! I definitely recommend if you liked the selection.
  • Violet H.
    **SPOILER ALERT**This was the best book in the series! And one of the most addictive! Tamsin Wright. It shocked me the most that she had a daughter! I mean, who could have seen that coming? Well, almost no one practically. In this book, she, a kind of, became a leader. And she did her job well. Although, she was reminding herself again and again that all this was for Merry, her daughter. Jago Robinson. Or should I say Jacob Robinson? Well, does i...

    Liked book 2 a tad more but this story is still better than book 1. Tamsin is very feisty and gets what she wants and if doesn't puts up a great fight. This book is between a 3.5-4 for me.
  • Laura
    I fell in love with Adelaide and Cedric. I quite enjoyed Mira and Grant. But I was thoroughly entranced by Tamsin and Jago. Tamsin has depths that are only hinted at in the previous books. And Jago. *sigh* I think he's my favorite of the heroes. He really lets Tamsin shine. I actually "ah"ed out loud when Tamsin was upset and Jago faked a problem with the horse harness to have Tamsin groom the horses, which helped her. I would love to see another...
  • Nicole Evelina
    Good, but very repetitive of the first two books and overly long. If I had to hear one more time that Tamsin "gets things done," I would have strangled someone. Tamsin, it turns out is one of those characters that is best as a supporting character. When she is given her own book, she's a bit much. But the parts of the storyline that weren't overlapping the first two books were good.

    *Source* Library*Genre* Young Adult / Fantasy*Rating* 3.5*Thoughts*The Emerald Sea, by author Richelle Mead, is the third and final installment in the Glittering Court trilogy. The book answers the trilogy’s biggest question: what is the secret that drives Tamsin to win at all costs? Tamsin Wright is unstoppable.

    What a great conclusion to this series! I enjoyed Tamsin’s story so much.
  • Brittany Deroche
    This Glittering Court finale was the best SO FAR! Wow. I liked The Glittering Court, it reminded me of the Selection. The second book was good but my last favorite of all three. This one ... it had tons of action, love , just everything. I mean I liked it so much. I’m shocked.
  • Lauren Baptista
    Tamsin Wright has always been a marvelous character, so I was expecting nothing less of her in this book written in her full perspective. She definitely delivered, and more at that! As based on my ratings, each book of this series has gotten better and better! The first book wasn’t horrible, so I didn’t give up on this series, and I’m so glad I didn’t! There are just so many secrets, relationships, and adventures to keep the series going!...
  • Jennifer
    The Emerald Sea is the final book in the YA The Glittering Court trilogy.The narrator is 20 year old Tamsin.These books feature the same overall story. However I was very excited to see what actually happened to Tamsin when she was separated from Adelaide and Mira.I thought that we were supposed to be able to read these books out of order as each book is a self-contained story. However, I really can't see how you could read The Emerald Sea withou...
  • Jackie
    For me, this book was the weakest of the three. It has adventure but still had pockets where it felt dragged out. The author could have cut 100 pages out. Overall I loved the second book the best in this series!
  • Christy
    Tamsin's story is my favorite and I'm glad we got to end the series with it!
  • Jill booksandescape
    The Emerald Sea by Richelle Mead is the third and final novel in the Glittering Court series. While the first novel followed Adelaide, and the second novel Mira, this conclusion follows Tamsin. In this book, we discover Tamsin's past and why it is so important to her to get the highest scores and become the diamond, and why it is important for her to find the richest husband. We also get a glimpse at Tamsin's life during her time when she is not ...

    This book was provided by the publisher. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.We’re making our final visit to the Glittering Court in The Emerald Sea. In the style of the previous two books, this one follows the same story and timeline but from the third character, Tamsin.I’d say The Emerald Sea was more like Midnight Jewel than The Glittering Court. Adelaide’s choices were never clear to me and, frankly, ...

    Well... to be honest.. I don't even know how to put my boredom into words yet... Review to come.The Emerald Sea is the final book in the Glittering Court series and each book is centred around a girl and their studies to find themselves a wealthy husband. This particular book is based on Tasmin Wright, who you learn from the previous books, is a bit of a determined and rude woman. Tasmin, like most of the girls that attended the Glittering Court,...
  • Rachel Colbert
    If I could give this book 6 stars, I would.It has been a long time since I have read a book and FELT it. Am I the only one who gets a pit in my stomach when reading about mis-communications that break apart people who are truly good to and for each other? If I am, whatever I am okay with it. It makes my reading experience really intense. I read this book in one sitting, at night, knowing I had a 6 am wake up the next morning and even now, exhaust...
  • Amanda ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Elizabeth
    I enjoyed these books a whole lot, but I don't think I'll be clamoring to reread them anytime soon.I absolutely love the way that these books are set up. Three books, three different POVs, published far enough apart that I barely remember anything from the previous book. I love that things are left unanswered in each POV. In Glittering Court we only get answers that are directly connected to Adelaide. In Midnight Jewel you only get answers direct...
  • Liilaa
    I loved The Emerald Sea best of this series, I think. First of all, THE COVER. I mean, the other covers were the basically same, but still. Second of all, the characters. Mostly, they were well developed, except for the villain, because I felt like he had valid goals and just went about to reaching them the wrong way, and that should have been acknowledged. Otherwise:Tamsin: I LOVE HER SO FRICKIN' MUCH. She's a badass feminist and we need more of...

    The conclusion of The Glittering Court trilogy features Tamsin as she rises to the top of the Court of girls. But, as they travel to Adoria, Tamsin’s ship is lost at sea and she finds herself diverted from her goal of a rich husband and safety for her family.When I read the first volume of this trilogy, Tamsin’s story intrigued me the least and her personality grated on me the most. But after reading this novel devoted to Tamsin’s story, my...
  • Samantha
    Yes! This is probably my favorite of the trilogy, and I'm actually really glad that Richelle Mead released them in the order she did. And now I totally need to go back and reread both Adelaide and Mira's books, just so I can see if I can piece together other details and such that I didn't even realize that I missed. Tamsin is such a determined individual, and even though her secret was very predictable, Mead didn't try and hide it for too long. I...
  • Ameythist Moreland
    Definitely my favorite of the Glittering Court trilogy, but maybe that's just because I found Tamsin so relatable. She's such an amazing, strong, and determined woman who knows exactly what she wants and will stop at nothing to get it.I do hope we'll see more of this world in the future as I have so many questions about the Icori and the Balanquan people.
  • Stacy
    I enjoyed wrapping up the Glittering Court Series. I especially enjoyed that none of the 3 girls in the books actually married as they intended! Instead they found independence, learned that they were worth more than being trophy wives, opened up with each other, as well as other people, and found the love, adventure and opportunity they were searching for.
  • Deb
    The last of the trilogy, Emerald Sea is better than Midnight Jewel. Although I like the second book, this one had a much better story too it. I also think the writing was better. Tamsin is a tough woman and shows her strength throughout the story. I recommend the series.
